Diabetes Classes

Through our diabetes classes, it is our hope that you will learn about diabetes and how it is treated, the benefits of exercise, meal-planning, complications and how to prevent them and many other important topics.

Pre-Diabetes Nutrition

If you have difficulty losing weight, and your blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar have been going up, you may have insulin resistance. Insulin resistance increases your chance of developing cardiovascular disease, stroke and/or Type II diabetes. This is a three-part series addressing nutrition and exercise. The class is taught by a registered dietitian and exercise specialist.
